The American Motorcyclist Association’s annual motorcycle celebration will return to Mid-Ohio, July 23-25, 2021. Your ongoing patience is deeply appreciated as we have navigated through the challenges that 2020 has presented.

Tickets purchasers on file who purchased their tickets from Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the 2020 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days originally scheduled for July 10-12, 2020 will receive an automatic deferral of their tickets to the 2021 event. This also includes those who purchased other event passes such as tent or motorhome camping. No action is required. New tickets will be issued for the 2021 event closer to the event dates.

Should you have any additional questions, please contact [email protected] Please stay safe and healthy as we all continue to navigate the global COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course!


Officially scheduled, but the situation may not improve quickly enough. And even though they have had our money to play with all year, will they spend any to any degree to make this event worth attending??? As if any of the funds from last years ticket sales is even still available.

Yes you do detect an air of aggressive distrust, the last several years have been less and less enjoyable. Dealing with sub-human attendees that entitled themselves to camp encroachment, throwing trash on our site, deflating our bike tires, acting like they came from a condemned trailer park and this was the first time they got drunk.

Diminished facilities for attendees, less events and entertainment, and the racing? While still noisy, not entertaining. I thought this was vintage Motorcycle days??? Yes the Ashland flat track races are still the same and well run, but this is only the only one.

The swap meet remains big and diverse but is overly populated with Japanese bikes & HD stuff. Plus deals are really HARD to find. And you are in danger of being run down by bikes & quads driving the aisles.

I know this is more about meeting up with the people we enjoy seeing, and that can't be affected by AMA or the dirt bags. But attendance is of those is also down and That is the sad truth...

I've never been a fan of Mid-Ohio for several of your reasons. I'm going to the Gilmore Museum classic bike show/event this year. June 12, 13, as I recall. Classy place, fun, some decent vendors and dealing going on. No racing, unfortunately.

I share Ron's critique of MidOhio these days; on the other hand, it's hard to resist seeing everyone!

I just noticed the "Farmville" location on your profile ... I'm "Appomattox", myself, so we're the only two within 50 miles of here!

Hat is off to you Sir, if you're making that long a journey. Yes, truly classy joint... could spend a week there with internal combustion-related distractions. Tremendous museum(s), well staffed with savvy docents, gorgeous settings. Allegedly more in storage and in works than on display.

Lone bad point is that Blue Moon is the only beer available there.

Kinda apples/oranges comparing with Mid-Ohio though. Swap meet is, well, at least a good excuse for visiting...
